Hello,
I'm owner of Samsung NP-N150-JP01PL.
In my case after installing samsung-backlight and samsung-tools I use following sollution with success:

1. edit /etc/default/grub
Code:
sudo nano /etc/defautl/grub

2. change line from
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

to
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor"

3. update grub
Code:
sudo update-grub2

4. create file /etc/modprobe.d/samsung-backlight.conf
Code:
sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/samsung-backlight.conf

5. insert into this file following line and save it
Code:
options samsung_backlight use_sabi=0 force=1

6. reboot the system

This solution was checked under GNOME and KDE and in both it works perfectly.
Naturally you can use your favourite text editor instead of nano.


I could only set the brightness to the min or max with the backlight keys on my NF-310, I tried everything on this thread, with no success, but with your solution it finally works! Thanks!

And you don't encounter issues like flickering screen with brightness level going up and down quickly ?

Thanks

Not anymore! Now the screen dims correctly after some time of inactivity.

Confirmed on NF310.

Although after some fiddling around with power state, lid and suspend/hibernate cycles I managed to make plugging cable out cause 'closed lid' action, which is very annoying if it is set to suspend. After a proper reboot the glitch didn't repeat itself though. I don't really want to reproduce it ;)

Thank you everybody !

I have tried to add the command acpi_backlight=vendor in my Grub and it's all right, I have recovered my Fn brightness buttons in the 2.6.35-28 kernel.

Great !

Passing the kernel parameter acpi_backlight=vendor does the trick on N-148.

However, I did see weird issues running on battery, after idling for a few seconds system tries to adjust the brightness itself back and forth flickering for 20-30 times, unchecking the dim display when idle fixed it.

Good to see it's been such a long post, in fact I haven't used my netbook for a while...
